Did you ever think that manufacturers can not make a comfortable 7 seater within the sub 4 meter range? Mahindra tried with their Quanto, but could not succeed. The next in line is Datsun’s GO+ MPV which will be their second product here in India.
And these first ever spyshots of GO+ MPV from India by Indianautosblog.com, confirm that Nissan has started road testing their sub 4-meter MPV in India. Go+ will feature 5+2 seating configuration and is basically an elongated Go hatchback with more space.
Go+ will also carry the same 1.2L petrol engine from Go and hence will be classified as a ‘small’ car in India attracting the least 8% excise duties. This would definitely enable Datsun to price its car competitively in the market, much below the next competitor Ertiga.
Featured on this page is the coffee-colored mule, which, interestingly also has the badges ready and hidden. Does this signal that the product is almost production ready and we may be able to hear concrete reports about its launch sometime soon?
In terms of looks, majority of the bits have been carried over from Go hatchback with some changes done to the rear to ensure the design goes well with the Van-ish looks. The number plate has moved up on to the rear tailgate and GO+ gets an additional body-colored strip over it. The tail-lamp cluster is almost identical and so are those running lines. Interiors are also on the same lines with similar dashboard, steering wheel and other bits.
Indonesia has become the first country to get the Go+ where it is priced between Rs 85 to 103 million Indonesian Rupiah which equates to something in the region of Rs 4.42 to 5.35 Lakhs INR, complete details and brochure of which you can find here. In India, we expect Datsun to start Go+ at around Rs 4 lakhs.
